Williams & Johnson at Waverley Mall

As we highlighted in our post about the 25 Best Things to Eat and Drink This August, Williams & Johnson have recently opened a branch in Waverley Mall, bringing their coffee excellence to the city centre.

With their roasting base of operations and first cafe at Custom Lane, W&J have built a strong reputation coupled with a succession of cafes stocking their beans over recent times.

Waverley Mall seemed a really odd location for a second branch, but a very welcome one. Apparently it heralds a change in direction for the tired shopping centre which has been home to some fairly mediocre food options up until now.

I popped into the new cafe space on a blazing hot day. Once I’d acquired my usual espresso (£2.40), I took up station in a shaded spot just outside where a few tables provide an excellent opportunity to watch the world go by in a relatively cool vantage point.

I very much enjoyed the coffee which was delivered to their usual excellent standard.

It will be interesting to see how the cafe develops as there’s an opportunity to grow into the space and make it a signature cafe spot.

So overall, it was great to see Williams & Johnson’s new cafe hit the ground running in such fine style. Make sure to visit soon and take advantage of this well-located purveyor of splendidly good coffee.
